Five: Tumblr Blogs I Love

The fact that I’m on tumblr as a fangirl is an open secret. I’m not planning to hand out my username, since it’s the one I’ve been using in fandom for about thirteen years, but I’m there, and I’ve been there for a while, and I’m probably not going to leave until fandom picks up and moves someplace better for us.

But fandom has been increasingly disappointing as of late. As a result, I’ve been following more art and artsy porn blogs. Art, archaeology, and naked guys. I’m not a very surprising person.

1. scruffyhunks.tumblr.com

Not safe for work and exactly what it says on the tin: scruffy hot dudes. I am pretty sure I’ve been following this blog most of the time I’ve been on tumblr. Be warned that there is often explicit gay porn. But that just adds to the charm of the blog.

2. pleasekeepitclean.tumblr.com

The only thing I like better than naked guys is wet naked guys and this is an entire blog dedicated to men in the bathtub or shower. I used a lot of exclamation points when I emailed the link to this blog to a friend. Every now and then, I’ll come across something that feels like it was created just for me. This is one of those things.

3. archaeologicalnews.tumblr.com

Another blog I’ve been following basically since I got a tumblr, this one posts daily updates from archaeology academia. It’s wonderful. The links lead to the official publications and it’s so, so easy to keep up with what’s going on in the field I have my degree in.

4. centuriespast.tumblr.com

An art/artifact blog complete with history of the item. I don’t think they discuss anything younger than 1850. Visiting this blog is like virtually visiting a museum. It’s wonderful.

5. thedailylouvre.tumblr.com

If I remember correctly, this blog is run by someone who works in the Louvre and posts one picture of one artifact each day. It’s been a few weeks since the last post, but it’s still worth checking out. This is such an interesting way to blog about museum pieces.

Honorable mentions: MOMA, the Getty, and the Brooklyn Museum all have tumblr blogs. Romy7 is a personal blog by a guy with wonderful taste who is responsible for my favorite gifset on tumblr.
